Country Experience: Brazil: division of work on trade data quality (ch. 5)
Box V.3 Experience of Brazil in the division of work on trade data quality
In Brazil, there is a clear division of labour on foreign trade data quality assurance. The agency responsible for the quality of the export data is the Secretariat of Foreign Trade (SECEX) of the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade (MDIC), while the agency responsible for the quality of import data is the Federal Revenue Service of Brazil (Customs) of the Ministry of Finance.
Export data quality is guaranteed by the validation system of SECEX/MDIC, as described in Annex IX.A of this Manual, while the quality of import data is guaranteed by the application of the Customs Valuation Agreement of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and by application of the parameterized customs system on the physical and documents supervision.
